      > I just purchased a fluval FX5 filter and was wondering what filter media would be best for my set up. I have a 40 gallon tank with three Goldfish. Two are almost 7 inches in size The other is a Fancy tailed Big Bellied about 4 inches nose to tail. Also is a 3 inch catfish and a 4 inch Pleco. My tank is always dirty so we got the FX5 thinking it will help.

      gallon tank is going to be too small for the fish you have. I would
      suggest upgrading to at least a 75 gallon (48" x 18").
